From Kanchanaburi: Thai Village Tour Half Day by Song Taew (Small Truck)
If you are one of those who are interested in observing a rural way of life, this programme should not be missed. At first glance, Nong Khao, 12 kms. from Kanchanaburi, may not look much different from other Thai villages you come across, but with a closer touch, you will get impressed with the way it has always been. Appreciate a modest lifestyle of those in an agricultural society in which most members still earn their modest living by plating rice, raising cattle and weaving cloths. Enjoy E-Taen Farmer truck through the village, where its members always show signs of welcoming foreign visitors, and a panoramic view of the rice paddy fields dotted with patches of fan palm trees. Learn how important rice means to Thai people through a cultural practice of the ritual for the Rice Goddess. Observation of their seasonal activities related to rice plantation will enable you to appreciate their simple way of life.

I love this temple especially with the essence of local. Senior people who live nearby are gathering together here, like a small community, where they can proudly present their way of living. Their genuine and hospitality is real. I love people here.

It is located on the way to Pua district, far away from Nan city around 30 km. and you have to observe the sign to temple. Drive about 5 km from the main road. Once you get in, you will hear the local music from the local elder people who always play to welcome tourist, you can
